The Housing and Residential Education (HRE) department is currently looking for student candidates for the Resident Assistant (RA)/Community Assistant (CA) position on campus! Why become an RA/CA? Let me tell you. For our students this position offers an opportunity to not only grow as a leader and as a person; but to also give back to the UNC Bears Community.

Our RA/CA’s are integral in the overall experience that we offer here at UNC. Students who become RA/CA’s are given the opportunity to do everything from social programming (including Homecoming and other large-scale events) to quiet one on one conversations with other members of the campus community. This position makes a huge difference in the lives of our students.

HRE is looking for talented students who are internally motivated, willing to communicate, and excited about becoming a leader! Here is the way your student can become one of these leaders:

Step 1: Attend and Information Session to learn about the job

Step 2: Apply on Handshake, Job # 3307309 

Step 3: Attend our Group Process Day on Feb 8th

Step 4: Schedule an Individual Interview either Friday Feb 21st or 28th

Step 5: Take a deep breath because you did such a good job through the process!!!!

All the information your student will need to apply for this position is located on our Housing website We encourage your student to reach out to their current RA or Hall Director. Our staff is here to answer any question you might have.

This is very competitive process, so we encourage all students to apply early and to begin preparing for their interviews. The application closes on January 26th! As the Spring semester gets going be on the lookout for interview tips and tricks, application resources and other helpful hints.

We are excited to meet your student ad find the next round of campus leaders. Go Bears!
